the news about the shootings in connecticut. first i heard three had died. that was bad enough, and then i heard 20 children had died. i was devastated. i have two grandchildren the same age as the children who were shot and killed in newtown, connecticut. on sunday, when i opened the newspaper to read about the shootings, i saw a photograph of one of the children who was killed. her name was emily. a little blonde-haired girl with a beautiful smile. she looked at me from the paper, i saw my granddaughter's elsa and tilly looking back at me. so i come to this issue as a grandparent whose children but for fate could have been in the same situation as the children in newtown. and come to this as a member of congress. you know the people back home in just about every district keep asking us why it is that we can't get anything done here. well, i'm a newcomer. i've only been here about five months, and i know what is going on in terms of the political gamesmanship. this is an issue on which political games have to stop. we should have members of the republican caucus standing with us today and

morning. are you with us? last chance. we will move on to doreen in connecticut. caller: i'm a small business owner. host: what kind of business? caller: i do alterations. in the evening return our business into a zumba class for ladies. my daughter and i seem to be doing pretty good. the ladies we hire as seamstresses are independent contractors. these are skills they got from their parents who taught them how to sew. we just went and put out advertising saying we needed seamstresses and we got six good seamstresses. we pay them enough that they can get their own health-insurance and they seem to be doing pretty well. i don't think that giving people the assistance in helping to further their endeavors is a bad thing. i think people who tried to stop people from making it further, they are just being selfish, because you can help individuals if they have skills. they don't have to have a college education to have certain skills. you can use those skills to your advantage and still help them along the way. they can get thrown help insurance. small businesses really are not hurting in

. host: vincent in connecticut. caller: good morning. thank you for appearing. i refinanced this last spring and summer and it was a spectacular success. there was a real savings of about $360 a month which is nearly $4,000 a year. with the recent proposals to expand or keep going the program, where is the brunt of the money that is saved? who ends up paying for it? guest: we have to recognize that by getting into the market -- when we have a program that is lowering the rates, their income level is going down. the banking industry was receiving a high interest income and now they are receiving more market competitive income. the banking industry has recovered very nicely. the profit levels are back to pre-recession levels. there is plenty of cash reserve. it is just common sense to say thatthe current rate is 3.5%. some people are stuck at 6% and under water and unable to refinance it with private banks and a little help from the government to get the lower interest rates. -- and to get a little help from the government to get the lower interest rate,it makes perfect sense. it is goo

traffic trying to get back to the capitol for a vigil that we were having for the newtown, connecticut atrocity, i kept remembering the words "even though i walk through the valley of the shadow of death, i will fear no evil for you are with me." i found myself asking in the car how was it that he was able to walk so confidently through the valley of the shadows of death? i began to speculate. i thought, perhaps, he could do it because he had been in that valley before. i had heard the story of the silver dollar that saved his life. he had two silver dollars in his pocket. he had been in the valley of shadows before, walking through, not jogging or running, with the temperament, he could walk through. i said there has to be more than that. i continued to drive, and i thought, perhaps, he was able to walk so confidently into the valley of the shadows because he knew there was light in that valley. you can't have shadows without light. i remembered his prayer breakfast speech, only a few weeks ago, and how he talked about his faith roots, and i knew that he had illumination in the valley
